Keyless access and start

The CITROËN DS5 is intuitive to use with its keyless start system that recognises drivers as soon as they approach. With the electronic key within close range, a light touch opens the door and welcomes you to a whole new driving experience.

The journey has just begun.

Engine Performance

The CITROËN DS5 is now available in 2 variants - petrol 1.6L THP 155 automatic and diesel 1.6L e-HDi 115 ETG. The automatic variant is mated to an award winning 1.6L turbo-charged petrol engine, winner of the International Engine of the Year award for seven consecutive years, from 2007 to 2013. Its chassis gives superb flexibility on the road with a maximum torque of 240Nm available from 1,400 rpm. A powerful and environment-friendly drive is also made possible by the DS5’s twin-scroll turbocharger that improves combustion and consumes over a combined cycle of 7.3l/100km for reduced CO2 emissions of 169g/km.

Airdream Eco-label

The CITROËN DS5 e-HDi is part of CITROËN's Airdream range, which features the new Efficient Tronic Gearbox (ETG), a more fuel-efficient gearbox system. Available in the diesel variant, the e-HDi micro-hybrid technology with Stop&Start function cuts carbon emissions by about 5g/km in homologation cycles. Under real conditions of use, these gains can reach up to 15% in heavy traffic in cities.

Combined (litres/100km) CO2 emission (g/km)

New ETG Gearbox

Mated to the CITROËN DS5 e-HDi variant, the Efficient Tronic Gearbox is a clutch-less manual that drives like an automatic car, allowing drivers to switch from manual to automatic mode at any time, depending on their requirements and driving environment. The new gearbox features a creep function and optimised pedal mapping, adjusting power effectively for smoother start-ups and enhanced driveability. It also modulates gear change speeds more precisely, based on driver input, for improved performance and comfort. New gear shift patterns also reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emission.

Hybrid4 Technology

The CITROËN DS5 Hybrid4 boasts a CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km, four drive settings and dynamic on-road performance, with a total 200 bhp. With its first diesel hybrid drivetrain, CITROËN DS5 Hybrid4 has combined the performance of a HDi diesel engine with the advantages of electric power.

* Please check with Cycle and Carriage on availability of Hybrid4.

Head-up display

On board the CITROËN DS5, technology goes hand in hand with driveability. The head-up display, a particularly innovative feature, projects essential driving information onto a glass panel in the driver's direct line of vision. With their eyes firmly fixed on the road ahead, drivers can journey with complete peace of mind.

* Specifications may vary. Please check with Cycle and Carriage on the full specifications.

Aerodynamic silhouette

An eye-catching, daring design with inspired detail, the CITROËN DS5’s aerodynamic silhouette is bold and assertive. The car’s steely gaze, underlined by a LED light signature, together with its distinctive chrome-finished sabre and rear wing design, add up to an unparalleled elegant presence, akin to an aerodynamic sculpture. The CITROËN DS5 also boldly displays its personality in every detail, including the two tail pipes built in to the rear bumper.

An aircraft-like cabin

In a quest to give you deluxe comfort and personal space, the cockpit roof is divided into 3 wells of light, which can be covered individually to create a signature day and night. As in an aircraft, the CITROËN DS5’s overhead centre console showcases wisely engineered buttons and toggle switches. Similarly, the lower centre console houses core technology controls such as window controls, central locking system, electric child lock, radio, navigation controls and the menu configuration.

Refinement down to the last detail

Every detail has been given great thought to immerse you into a universe of sophistication. The CITROËN DS5 is complete with noble materials from the best car producers and suppliers in the world. Haute couture sophistication and artistry are expressed in the seat design inspired by an elegant watchstrap and made of fine Bavarian bull leather. Finer details, such as its distinctive analogue clock and the sleek aluminum finishing of the cabin, make the DS5 unlike any other.

A bold inspiration

The CITROËN DS5 offers a new approach in the premium executive segment. Combining compact body dimensions with a spacious interior, DS5 goes beyond traditional compromises.

Inspired by the C-SPORTLOUNGE first presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005, this concept car seduced the audience from the outset with its original design, aerodynamics, flowing lines and a spacious interior.

Compact & spacious cabin

The CITROËN DS5 is an unconventional car. Allowing no compromises, it has found a true balance between driving pleasure and shared comfort: 4,530mm in length, 1,871mm in width, and 1,539mm in height.

This compact design makes the car more nimble and responsive while cutting fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. But the CITROËN DS5 is also a true 5-door, 5-seater model with the accessibilty and rear space of a saloon.

Pleasure of travel

Sight, touch and hearing are stimulated by the refined comfort of the interior. The spatialised sound of the 6-speaker CD RDS MP audio system, the diagnostic socket for USB audio, and iPhone connectivity deliver superior sound quality for your listening pleasure on the move.

Likewise, a more refined journey awaits as the DS5's aerodynamic styling soundproofs the cabin against exterior noise, road noise and wind noise.

Boot & storage

The compact exterior design in no way detracts from onboard functions. Quite the contrary, the generous boot has a capacity of 468 litres VDA.

Looking beyond the usual storage features, the central console has a double 13-litre compartment under the armrest. The top part features a jack and USB port to connect mobile appliances. The lower part, which is cooled and lit, lets you store a 1.5 litre bottle.The high-mounted console in the cockpit roof features two eyeglass holders, and the driving position includes an open cubby just next to the driver's right hand.

Active & passive safety features

The CITROËN DS5 scored the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating and guarantees high-level passive safety with a total of 6 airbags. It is also fitted with active safety features such as electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), emergency brake assist (EBA) as well as anti-lock braking system (ABS) to deliver stability and optimum vehicle control under the most delicate driving situations.

Parking assistance features

Features such as the front & rear parking sensors, reverse tilt side mirrors, reverse camera with parking guide and parking space gap measurement assist the driver to ease into and out of parking spaces safely.

Automatic headlights & static cornering lights

The signature CITROËN front grille features automatic headlights which make driving much safer under any lighting condition. On the other hand, static cornering lights increase visibility of the inner part of the bend or intersection by up to 75° to the left and right of the car when cornering. This technology springs into action automatically when the driver uses his indicator or when the steering wheel turn exceeds 60°.

Automatic electric parking brakes & Hill Start Assist System

The CITROËN DS5's automatic electric parking brakes and Hill Start Assist System give drivers ample time to move their foot from the brake to accelerator without slipping backwards or forwards on a slope.

Intelligent Traction Control

The Intelligent Traction Control is a valuable driving aid in poor weather conditions. Unlike the conventional traction control that cuts out the accelerator when the driving wheels start to spin, the Intelligent Traction Control seeks to continuously optimise grip by allowing the wheels to spin slightly, thus improving traction on slippery roads.

Child safety features

Child safety is ensured with ISOFIX anchor points that secure proper installation of child seats in the second row passenger seats. The lower cental console also houses an electric child lock to assure the safety of your younger passengers.
